We now know that the Hospital helipad is capable of handling takeoff and landings of pilotless helicopters! Thanks to futuristic thinking and, much to their credit, the brilliant design team from the government went ahead and incorporated tomorrow’s technology into the local, recent helipad blueprint and build. This, we now realize, necessitated the significantly raised and heated landing surface, which discretely houses the navigation technology capable of guiding a medivac-drone to the absolute dead centre of the heated concrete landing pad. This week, the first of several trial runs of a full-size medivac-drone helicopter will take place. Seventeen-year-old Michael Phools, a self-proclaimed geek and computer whiz-kid who won first place in the renowned 2016 Las Vegas World’s Gaming Competition, has been training extensively on the sophisticated $7 million medivac-drone. Though he will never leave the hangar, Michael will be the pilot-in-command on the debut flight. He will operate the high-tech helicopter from a $1 million palm-sized game console. The craft will depart from the Edmonton International Airport and touch down at the Hospital in Camrose eighteen minutes later. For safety reasons, a trained helicopter pilot will be available during the first and subsequent four test flights. However, to duplicate reality, Captain Emilia Baron will be restricted to laying on a stretcher keeping her eyes closed during the entirety of each test flight. She will be monitored by live video camera to ensure compliance with the government-crafted aviation regulation. In the event of an emergency the Captain will be contacted by text message to move to and take over the controls of the medivac-drone. Don’t miss this milestone event! It all happens this Saturday, April 1 at 9 a.m. – rain or shine. Story continues on page 34.

Camrose best places to celebrate By Murray Green

Expedia.ca named Camrose as one of the best places in the country to celebrate Canada Day. “Camrose is one of the best small towns to get away to for Canada Day,” said Jessica Estrada of Expedia. ca Travel Blog. “With the country’s 150th anniversary on the horizon, we at Expedia.ca

wanted to highlight some of the most delightful small towns in the provinces. Some of these were chosen based on the town’s special 150th events, while others offer summertime experiences you can’t get anywhere else.” Beaumont, Camrose, Canmore and Sylvan Lake are the top places in Alberta with plenty of activities.

This is what the Expedia.ca Travel Blog said about Camrose. “You can usually hear Camrose before you see it, as it plays host to major events like Big Valley Jamboree. With its location in the heart of Alberta, you can enjoy all the perks of a town, while never being too far from hiking trails and scenic parks.

Hinkley questions funding decision By Murray Green

NDP Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Bruce Hinkley is calling on Wildrose MLA Drew Barnes to withdraw his funding for the film The Environment: A True Story. “The Wildrose howls every time they’re called climate change deniers, and yet their energy critic endorses, and now financially supports, these conspiracy theories,” said a fired-up Hinkley. “His ideas would put pipeline approvals and the reputation of Alberta’s energy industry at risk – that’s why he needs to withdraw his funding for this project.” Filmmaker John Robson is producing The Environment: A True Story and publicly thanked Barnes for funding his film. Former Wildrose MLA Paul Hinman was also thanked. The film is described as a documentary explaining what we really know about earth’s climate over 500 million years, dispelling pseudoscientific scaremongering. Robson is seeking crowd funding for the documentary, in which he claims he will demonstrate that the global warming alarmist orthodoxy is demonstrably false. In a recent article in the National Post condemning ‘the cult of the anti-scientific climate model’, Robson said, “We should try to explain the evidence, including that winter still happens,” apparently claiming that winter is evidence that climate change is a hoax. “We’ve seen a disturbing pattern of climate change denial from Mr. Barnes, who has promoted dozens of social media posts denying climate change and calling climate science a fraud,” said Hinkley. “Albertans want their MLAs to focus on jobs and supporting a strong energy industry. In promoting these theories, Mr. Barnes hurts the reputation of our energy industry and does nothing to make life better for the people we were elected to represent,” said Hinkley.

REFLECTIONS by Bonnie Hutchinson Secret lives of trees

As spring moves in and trees are awakening from their winter sleep, Peter Wohlleben has expanded my horizons – maybe yours, too. He’s written a book about trees that made my eyes widen more than once. Full disclosure here. I haven’t actually read the book. What I have read is an essay with extensive excerpts from the book. The essay is by Maria Popova in her Brain Pickings newsletter. My eye-widening about trees started with the book’s title: The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate. Trees feel? And communicate? Could this be true? Who knew? ***

Well, Wohlleben didn’t know these things when he began working with trees. Far from being a tree-hugger, he was a forester whose job was to maximize the forest’s output for the lumber industry. He says he “knew as much about the hidden life of trees as a butcher knows about the emotional life of animals.” That changed about twenty years ago when he began organizing survival training and tours for tourists in his forest in the Eifel mountains in Germany. As tourists marveled at the majestic trees, Wohlleben’s childhood love of nature was reawakened. About the same time, scientists began conducting research in his forest. The combination of tourists’ awe and scientists’ discoveries changed his perspective. He says, “Life as a forester became exciting once again. Every day in the forest was a day of discovery. This led me to unusual ways of managing the forest. When you know that trees experience pain and have memories and that tree parents live together with their children, then you can no longer just chop them down and disrupt their lives with large machines.” Whew! Trees experience pain and have families? Definitely eye-widening territory. ***

I wouldn’t have thought trees have defence mechanisms, but they do. For example, when giraffes begin nibbling on acacia trees on the African savannah, it takes only minutes for the trees to start pumping toxins into the leaves. The giraffes move on, and not just to the next tree. The acacia trees that were being eaten give off a warning gas (ethylene) that signals to neighboring trees that a crisis is at hand. Right away, all the forewarned trees also pump toxins into their leaves to prepare themselves. The giraffes have learned to move far away from the first acacia trees they nibbled.

I recently learned that the new Beauty and the Beast movie will feature a gay character. To say I was very disappointed is an understatement. I don’t believe a movie aimed at a children’s audience is any place for this. I am not a ‘homophobe’, I believe in equal rights for everyone and treating everyone with respect. But I feel very strongly that a gay character is totally unnecessary in a children’s movie. As a child, I grew up loving Disney movies and books, fairy tales that spurred the imagination. I know that my parents could trust in the innocent nature of the things I was exposed to through Disney books and movies. Now, as a mother and aunt, I know that I cannot do the same. I cannot see a single point or benefit of adding a gay character into a children’s movie. I don’t believe that it would make any difference to the plot or improve the quality of the movie in

any way. I understand that being gay and transgender is widely accepted as part of the mainstream culture of today. However, these issues should not be something children are exposed to while they are so impressionable. Children have the right to be children. Give them a chance to grow and develop their own values and opinions before shoving these adult themes down their throats. They should be able to watch a children’s movie about subjects that relate to childhood. Why couldn’t Lafou have been a bully? This may not seem like a big deal to some, but I would like you to consider how far we’ve come in just a few years with these issues. It started with two girls kissing on an adult sitcom at a time that swear words were almost unheard of on television. Now there are commercials, afternoon shows and even the news with absolutely no discretion. Where and when does it stop? This is a children’s movie company, it is not their place to influence what our children grow up viewing as the ‘norm’. It is our jobs as their parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents to protect them and let them be children. Going forward, I will be deleting all of my accounts associated with Disney. Any chance that I would ever take my children to Disneyland, or any theme parks associated with Dis-

ney has vanished. I will be boycotting all future films and books that come from Disney. Tamara Morris, Hay Lakes Daylight saving

Alberta’s geography makes more than any other province able to benefit from daylight saving. The populous southern regions of Alberta; Calgary which is located between 3,500 and 4,000 feet above sea level, Lethbridge 3,000 feet above sea level, Edmonton 2,300 feet above sea level and Camrose 2,400 above sea level, all experience large daily temperature fluctuations resulting from this high altitude. Early morning cold almost reaches freezing temperature many days in the summer, and the best time of the day occurs in the late afternoon and evening when the sun has had an opportunity to warm our high altitude ground. Daylight Saving gives us an extra hour of evening daylight and warmth; our thousands of parks are filled with children and adults playing lacrosse, soccer, baseball and even picnics. It is healthy. To cut that evening opportunity by one hour now would be a retrograde move. I urge every MLA and citizen of our high altitude province to oppose this NDP proposed deterioration of our summer lifestyle. Clark Seaborn, Foothills

***

Trees are social. Scientists found that neighbouring trees help each other through their root systems. They do this directly, by intertwining their roots, or indirectly, by growing fungal networks around roots that are like an extended nervous system that connects separate trees. Groups of trees have an extended “nervous system”? Another eye-widener. Trees share food with their own species and sometimes even nourish competitor trees because there are advantages to working together. On its own, a tree cannot establish a consistent local climate. It’s at the mercy of wind and weather. Together, many trees create an ecosystem that moderates heat and cold, stores water, and generates humidity. In this protected environment, trees can live to be very old. To get to this point, the community must remain intact. If every tree were looking out only for itself, many of them would never reach old age. Regular fatalities would result in large gaps in the tree canopy, which would make it easier for storms to get inside the forest and uproot more trees. The heat of summer would reach the forest floor and dry it out. Every tree would suffer. Every tree is valuable to the community and worth keeping around for as long as possible. Even sick trees are supported and nourished until they recover. Next time, perhaps it will be the other way round, with the supporting tree in need of assistance. ***

My main takeaway: A tree can be only as strong as the forest that surrounds it. And perhaps we can only be as strong as the community that surrounds us. Helping one another really is in our own self-interest. ***

The Camrose Cougars midget hockey team will be hosting a sledge hockey tutorial and game through Parasports Alberta on March 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena. Cougars manager Brad Parsons and the team wanted to help a former minor hockey player. “Owen Johnson is an 18-year-old former player that through a horrific car accident became paralyzed from the chest down. He was a phenomenal athlete in baseball and hockey,” shared Brad. “He played for the Cougars for three years. Our team, through charity auction, bought the sledge hockey tutorial and game. Our team will participate along side Owen. It will be his first time trying it. We all believe it could be part of his future and maybe bring some sport and competition back into his life.”

MAXIMUM

GOLF into Swing Indoor g n Spri School Golf

Indoor Training Program 2017 Ind

Maximum Golf is a group-based golf training and cconditioning program meant to prepare golfers for the sseason ahead and increase one’s ability to swing more effi e ciently through the ball. This program is based on the repetition of a concise set of drills that allow you to practice without requiring the use of a golf ball. These drills teach you how to swing more efficiently and with better swing mechanics. Feeling is very important to this teaching method, proven for over 30 years. In 2017, this program will be taught in a two-week (4 sessions) condensed format. Given that people live very busy lifestyles, coupled with others who like to take a winter vacation, we understand that making a commitment to a program which lasts several weeks is too difficult. The condensed format offers a wealth of skills, without being too difficult to fit into one’s schedule. To avoid disappointment, you are encouraged to book early in this extremely popular program. BILL PENNY – C.P.G.A. Master Golf Professional has been teaching Maximum Golf since the mid-’80s to over 2,500 students. Now available to the Camrose golfing community.

Sessions start Tuesday, April 18: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30-8:15 p.m. Location: Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School, 39 Mt. Pleasant Drive

Controlling the cats By Lori Larsen

According to the Camrose and Area Animal Shelter Society (CAASS), Camrose is in need of a cat bylaw, similar to that for dogs, that would assist in controlling cats at large and provide for a location where found cats can be safely kept until claimed by their owners. Animal Shelter Society secretary Leah DaoustHoskins and vice-president Susan Hertel made a presentation to City council during the regular council meeting March 20. “In Camrose, people are accountable for their dogs. That includes keeping them under control and knowing their locations at all times,” said DaoustHoskins “This provides protection and safety for both the public and dogs. Cat owners should also have to be accountable for their cats.” Daoust-Hoskins explained that the City of Camrose has a large population of free-roaming cats, which can pose a number of problems to residents including health risks to people, defecating in gardens, flowerbeds and sandboxes, secondary health risks from people setting traps or using poison, running into the streets possibly causing traffic safety issues, rummaging through garbage creating messes and attracting other wildlife, killing other wild animals and breeding (if not neutered or spayed). “Free-roaming cats are not easily identified and, without some form of identification, it is impossible to tell whether these freeroaming cats are homeless strays or owned cats,” added Daoust-Hoskins. Daoust-Hoskins added that in conjunction with the bylaw, the City of Camrose also needs a facility to house found cats. “A facility is needed because concerned residents have nowhere to take found cats. There is no central location for cat owners whose cats are missing to go and look for them.” She explained that CAASS would be responsible for caring for the cats at the facility and maintaining the facility, picking up reported cats and transporting to vet clinics, reuniting cats with owners, carrying out adoption, soliciting donations and networking with rescue groups to help place cats. CAASS is requesting from the City a proposed bylaw, tags for collars, database of owners, microchip scanner, heated space with running water and a cellular phone for on-call volunteers. “There are a number of benefits the City of Camrose will see from a cat

It is with mixed emotions that Hue and staff announce that, after 13 wonderful years in their Main Street location…

Requesting cat bylaw

bylaw. Revenue will be generated from cat licensing and fines,” said DaoustHoskins. “There will be far fewer cats roaming the city, a smaller feral and stray population, more hygienic public spaces, fewer health risks, fewer traffic risks, higher beneficial wildlife

populations and Camrose would be a more progressive city.” Councillor Wayne Throndson inquired as to the approximate size, in square feet, required for the facility and if the facility would be staffed by volunteers on a 24-hour basis.

Hertel replied that the facility would not have to be very large. It would just need enough space to house whatever cats would be in care at any given time, space to feed and clean cats and room for the public dropping off or claiming

cats. CAASS volunteers could staff the facility. Councillor Ma x Lindstrand inquired as to past controversy over these concerns. Hertel indicated presently there was some concern over the fact that cats are difficult to catch. “You are not going to be able to get all of them. I don’t think there would be a shortage of cats that we would have to deal with. We would not have to go chasing the ones we cannot catch.” Councillor Greg Wood commented, “We discussed this last term and most of the fear was having to have another bylaw officer running around chasing cats.” Mayor Norm Mayer said, “The biggest concern is how do you enforce the bylaw? I hate to see a bylaw passed just for the sake of having a bylaw without any ability to enforce it.”

Kiwanis Top Cop honoured

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Kiwanis president Sandra Dukes presents Camrose Police Service Constable Adam Belanger with the 2017 Top Cop Award during a banquet honouring him and his unwavering volunteer service to Camrose and its youth. By Lori Larsen

Improving the world one child and one community at a time is the mandate of the Kiwanis Club, so it is only befitting that one of the clubs major initiatives is selecting and honouring police officers who go above and beyond the call of duty volunteering their time to the betterment of youth and community. Camrose and District Kiwanis Club held a special evening on March 18

to honour one of Camrose Police Service’s finest, Constable Adam Belanger, as 2017 Top Cop. Police Chief Darrell Kambeitz thanked the Camrose Kiwanis Club for once again honouring a member of the Service and for giving Camrose Police Service the opportunity to showcase one of their own. “It is a an honour to be given an opportunity to speak at this event,” said Chief Kambeitz. “And, congratulations to Adam.

“Policing a community is a challenge. It is a rewarding career and the only way that we are successful is if the police become part of the community and the community becomes part of us,” commented Kambeitz. “That is not always easy to do when usually the times that we deal with people are during conflict and crisis. It is very difficult to build those relationships and maintain those relationships unless you have people like Adam.

K a mbeitz a lso remarked on Adam’s dedication to maintaining good relationships in the community and how it reflects positively on the Police Service. “I know that you don’t do it for those reasons, but because you love it and enjoy it and we (as a Service) get to benefit from it and for that I thank you.” On behalf of City and council (PJ Stasko and Kevin Hycha present), Mayor Norm Mayer also congratulated Belanger and thanked the Kiwanis for putting on the event to honour a member of the Camrose Police Service. “Our guest this evening is being honoured for his activities in the community. “Adam has donated hours and hours to the community, as well as carrying out his full-time job as a member of the Camrose Police Service.” On behalf of the Kiwanis Club, Western Canada District secretary Peter Harrop extended greetings and congratulations. K iwanian Georgia Wensley introduced Belanger as the 2017 Top Cop. “Most of you have probably met Coach Adam the same place I did, on the football field,” said Wensley. Wensley spoke about Belanger’s dedication to football and the different coaching positions he has held over the past, including 14 years of coaching

football for Camrose Composite High School and creating and operating Open Football, a free program to players aged eight to university wishing to try football or develop their skills. “Adam has been instrumental in the growth of football in Camrose and a role model to a whole lot of children. “The nomination letter for Adam came, to no surprise, mostly from football players and football parents. We had multiple nominees, but the deciding factor for this year’s Top Cop was the letter we received from youth citing Adam’s dedication, caring and commitment and his gift of time. “One credited Adam for helping him feel the love of football, staying in school, graduating, moving on to university and becoming a coach.” Wensley also noted comments written about Belanger from players who said he not only gave his time on the field, but also was there for players in times of family crisis such as when one’s mother was in the hospital or when one’s father passed away. “Adam, you embody the Kiwanians motto of improving the world one child at a time and one community at a time.” Belanger graciously thanked the Kiwanians for the honour despite his preference of remaining more on the sidelines.

City proposes future school site By Lori Larsen

After a year of working on proposed sites for the location of the Elk Island Catholic School (EICS) high school, City of Camrose administration presented a report to City council during the regular council meeting on March 20. “Council has had several discussions about the location of the site for Elk Island Catholic School (EICS),” said City of Camrose manager Malcolm Boyd. “To date, these discussions have happened incamera due to the fact that some properties that were considered were privately owned. “At this point, that is no longer the case and we have recently had a meeting with the Battle River School Division (BRSD) on the topic of school sites. “This report identifies the current four options that have been debated, which are all publicly owned.” The four proposed sites are: Camrose Composite High School (CCHS) southwest corner, Rudy Swanson Park – east of the parks compound replacing the existing gravel lot, Valleyview West, park/school

reserve area and Rudy Swanson Park – north of the parks compound, replacing an existing soccer field. Boyd requested council provide further direction to administration on site preferences and which sites would not be worth pursuing, noting that pursuing the site located at CCHS would require input outside of the control of council because the property is owned by the BRSD board of governors. Council responds

Councilor Wayne Throndson indicated his reasoning for opting for the Valleyview West site. “When I look at the four options, it really narrows down to two and, after the meeting with BRSD, it’s narrowed down to one. “I see the logic of CCHS as being a site for a shared space between EIC and BRSD, but it is really not our place to intervene in that type of discussion that rests between BRSD and EICS and the relative government agencies.” Throndson also related the reasons the two Rudy Swanson Park sites were not viable options. “I think that is City land and we have long-term plans

for that, not in immediate future, but some point down the road.” In describing why he thought the Valleyview West site was the preferred option, Throndson stated, “A developer is bringing on 160 acres, or thereabouts, in a development and we can demand a contribution of up to 10 per cent, or roughly 16 acres, for a school site. That is what we have done in terms of a school site and so we have fulfilled our mandate under the MGA (Municipal Government Act). That site then would be available for whatever school division is ready to proceed.” Councilor Bill Sears (participating through teleconferencing) voiced his opinion in preferring the Rudy Swanson Park existing gravel parking lot site with possible discussion on a multi-use facility in that location. “I was hoping the Valleyview West site would become an elementary school.” Cou ncilor Ma x Lindstrand suggested council not get too involved with the details. “Council’s obligation is to make land available so an application can be made and, at some

Camrose Drive

68 Street

future point, hopefully the province will approve the construction of a new school.” Lindstrand agreed with councilor Throndson that Valleyview West is where land is available. “In my view, Rudy Swanson Park property is recreation land and, for many people, is considered untouchable. “BRSD has indicated that up to a decade from now, they may require the land for another school, so we will cross that bridge when we come to it, but for now, we have to make sure we have land available.” Councilor Throndson began the motion by stating Valleyview West be allocated as a potential school site (and made available for the first group that needs it) and the Rudy Swanson options are not on the table.

Rendering of Valleyview West proposed school site Throndson added as a comment, “I don’t think we need to specifically exclude or include the Comp (CCHS) site that is between the respective school divisions.” Councilor PJ Stasko indicated he was in favour of the motion, and that he was not in favour of the Rudy Swanson sites, but he wanted to ensure the Valleyview site would be available to application from either EICS or BRSD. Councilor Sears requested tabling the motion until the next council meeting to seek public input. The tabling motion was not seconded. A motion was passed in a vote of eight in favour and one opposing that administration be authorized to proceed with the designation of Valleyview West site for a future school site.

The Canadian Quilters’ Association knows that quilt guilds love making blocks, tops and quilts for donations. In recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday and as part of Quilt Canada 2017, the Association has launched the Big Quilt Bee for Ronald McDonald Houses in Canada. It hopes that by the conference on June 14 to 17, it will be able to donate 1,000 quilts. The members of the

Battle River Quilters’ Guild jumped at the chance to be part of this event. Since January, they have been working on the slab blocks that had to contain at least one piece of the special Canada 150 material. At their regular monthly meeting on March 15, president Judy Hoehn presented five large completed quilts to the Alberta representative of the Canadian Quilters’ Association, Kathi

Ewen. The quilters were informed that between 2,000 and 3,000 quilters from over 116 guilds and groups across Canada, the US, France and around the world are participating. The Association’s “quilt collectors” have received 171 fully completed quilts, 78 tops and almost 600 blocks to date. For information or to see pictures of the blocks, tops and quilts, follow them on line, or go to www.CBC Big Quilt Bee.

Top Cop honoured Continued from page 8

Belanger remarked that his approach to coaching a football team is very similar to the Kiwanians motto in that the team is made up of individuals, each doing their part, to the betterment of the team as a whole. Belanger recognized previous winners of the Top Cop award. “It cannot be overstated, the importance of our youth to see and interact with police officers outside our normal duties. “Volunteering helps establish the fact that we are not just a uniform. That way, the next time that they interact with a police officer, it humanizes that interaction.” Belanger credited his parents for instilling in him the importance of volunteering and thanked his wife and children for their tremendous support and patience and kidded about how his first daughter was born amidst the football season. “She was at her first football game six days later (after she was born.)” “I am also thankful for the support I receive from the Chief and other members of the service. The support I receive from my partners is insurmountable for allowing me to go out and do what I do.” On a final note, Belanger thanked the other coaches for knowing that police work comes first and finally thanked the players for letting him be a part of their lives and sharing in their successes both on and off the field.

Music is a powerful healer By Christina Rehmann, On behalf of the Camrose Senior’s Coalition

Music is such a powerful force in all our lives; for the tweenage Swifties (fans of Taylor Swift) and senior fans of our own Miss Shirley Winter and Handsome Hal alike! Music gets our toes tapping, puts a lyric on our lips and makes memories swirl in our minds. As the activities coordinator at Sunrise Village, a big part of my job is ensuring that our residents have a song in their hearts and I am so very fortunate to have the support of the vibrant Camrose music scene. Many volunteers in the community ensure that at least once a week (and often times, many more) we have live music and dancing, sing-alongs and hymn sings in our home. Hal, Isabel, Nancy, the Mennonite Choir, Jim and the Music Masters, the Metcalf Trio, Shirley and Maxine, Stan, Adolf and Norbert as well as the Golden Tones are regulars that selflessly bring their musical talents and no small amount of joy to our folks.

Recently, we have been participating in the Music and Memories pilot project that Kelsey Mailer and the kind people at Camrose Public Library have been championing. What a great program of which to be a part. Playlists are created specifically for the individual that reflects music that was present during important milestones in their lives. Music that was top of the pops in their neck of the woods when they turned 16, got married, or had their first child is put on an iPod and along with instructions for use and a set of comfortable headphones is placed in a zipped library bag for home use. Of particular benefit for those suffering with the onset with of dementia, it is also a gift for those seniors whose mobility issues may preclude them from getting out into the community to enjoy what our local music scene has to offer. Here at Sunrise, we have a few folks taking advantage of this wonderful program with nothing short of miraculous results. One gentleman has an

MP3 player populated with songs that he actually used to sing as a young man who was part of a quartet. Typically quiet and reserved, with his music on, he sings, sways and taps his feet in a way not seen in a long time – music brings a lightness to him that was otherwise lacking. I encourage anyone and everyone who has a loved one who might be a candidate for the Music and Memories Project to reach out to the Library and begin work on a playlist. The program is free the results are priceless. “Music is the only thing that stays with you forever. Friends come and go, seasons change, bruises fade…but when all is said is done, music is always there for you. It is the one thing that you can depend on to always remain by your side when everyone else has already left it.” I came across this quote online and couldn’t figure out to whom to attribute it. The Internet can be like that – certainly it is a widely felt and lovely sentiment.

Talk to us today about the benefits of pre-planning funeral arrangements The idea of advance funeral planning is one which many people would rather not think about. However, planning your own funeral is one of the kindest things you can do for your loved ones. At a time of grief, your family members will be spared the stress of making important, emotionally draining decisions. Pre-planning also ensures your final arrangements will be carried out according to your exact wishes, in a cost-sensitive manner. Call us today for more information about advance funeral planning or to arrange a no-obligation consultation with one of our directors.

New BNI Chapter launched Business Network International now has a chapter in Camrose. BNI Rose City was officially chartered as part of the BNI Alberta North region on March 23. BNI Chapters significantly impact the business growth of cities where they operate. In 2016 BNI members tracked over $52 million worth of business passed across the region. “Changing the Way the World Does Business” is the vision of BNI, which was founded in California in 1985. It has 7,800 chapters around the world with over a 211,000 members increasing their business

through a proven referral marketing program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals. By working together and supporting one another, BNI members reap the rewards of giving referrals to each other. Their motto, “Givers Gain,” puts an emphasis on connecting potential referral opportunities to fellow members thereby helping to grow the success of the group. The Camrose chapter’s first president is Andrey Sokolov of Alair Homes. When Andrey first came to Camrose he knew how

successful BNI chapters were in other parts of the province and he started working on bringing a BNI chapter to Camrose. That was in September of last year. The idea of bringing a BNI chapter to Camrose grew slowly and steadily, attracting members one at a time. A chapter must have 25 members before it can be launched. Training of the membership by BNI North leadership is now underway. Upon launch, the Chapter members will be inviting more Camrose business people to visit the group. For more information contact any BNI member.

Everything Fitz

Everything Fitz, the Fitzgerald Family Band, will be playing at the Daysland Palace Theatre on April 12 at 7:30 p.m. This is an all-ages concert in the Daysland and District Cultural Arts Society series. The Fitzgeralds are a family group featuring three-time Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open-Step Dance Champions Tom, Kerry and Julie Fitzgerald. They are joined by their parents, Pam and Paddy, as well as guitarist and lead vocalist Nate Douglas. The band presents a program of music and dance which reflects their distinct Canadian culture, a rich tradition of old-time fiddling and step-dancing. This family’s musical journey began early in life as they studied the unique style that evolved with Irish, Scottish and French immigrants. Over time, they have developed their art form to include various styles of fiddle music, including Celtic, jazz, bluegrass, French-Canadian and pop. They have also explored other forms of dance including tap and Irish. The siblings continue to push boundaries by fusing traditional and modern styles of fiddle and dance to create their own unique sound and style. Their creativity and passion for experimentation has led them to compose original tunes and arrangements. At a very young age, the siblings amazed audiences with their precision and sense of musicality. They spent their early years competing at fiddle and step-dance competitions across Ontario which provided them with a stage on which to hone their craft. Over the years, they have passionately pursued their goals in music, opening the doors to many enriching experiences. These spirited young artists are noted for their polished performances and provide wholesome, captivating entertainment for a diverse audience. They perform in theatres, on festival stages, at fairs and exhibitions, as well as at corporate and fundraising events and outreach programs in schools. Tickets are available by calling Sharon at 780-374-2403 for the season-ending concert.

Sparkle Dance Festival to hold two events in Camrose By Murray Green

SPARKLING DANCERS

Submitted Two Sparkle Dance Festivals will be held in Camrose on April 7 to 9 and April 27 to 29. A group performs For Tamara. Festival leaders Antoinelle Leibel, left, and Kirsti Bennett are former local dancers.

The Sparkle Dance Festival will be held for rural area dancers at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on April 7 to 9 with 11 companies and 915 dancers featured in workshops and routines. A second event called Sparkle Bright, also fully booked, will be on April 27 to 29 at the Lougheed Centre. It runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on all days. Eight studios will have 668 dancers. For a small fee, the general public can watch the routines and performances all day. “Both events are booked full with dance companies

and we actually have a waiting list. The first one is targeted to rural area clubs and the second is for larger centres and open to anyone,” said Kirsti Bennett, who operates the event with Antoinelle Leibel. Two former Camrose dancers are leading the event in their fourth season. “We are a family-run dance festival operating in central Alberta that is dedicated to celebrating and promoting the love of dance within recreational and competitive studios from small communities to larger centers,” said Kirsti. “Our platform advocates a nurturing and positive atmosphere for dancers

in which to feel comfortable, allowing them to perform, share and cultivate their passion.” Each of the dance companies will take part in workshops, work on routines and perform in front of adjudicators to ensure all dancers are learning. The first festival will include dancers from Heisler, Forestburg, Viking and Coronation. “We have different age categories, and this festival gives dancers an opportunity to get on stage and perform in a theatre with an audience and learn from adjudicators,” explained Kirsti.

one is a romance and the other is a tale of a saved tragedy. The opening will feature a presentation of The Wedding Story by Julianne Homokay – a one-act comedy of three characters: a storyteller, the perfect bride and a perfect groom. The storyteller attempts to tell a group of children an ideal bedtime story, having all the qualities of a classical romantic fairy tale. However, the reality of marriage known by the couple leads to some rather hilarious circumstances indeed. McTavish gives a quality hand in the direction of this well-known art form. A rendition of Terry Roueche’s But I Am French is sure to create laughter. In this romantic comedy, a very likable Charles tries to convince his no-nonsense girlfriend that he really is French, only to find that the accent might work, but his knowledge of the French language doesn’t. Hicks adds a personal flavor to this oneact play. He directs this British award-winning one-act romantic comedy drama entitled Is

Foolish Acts take over Bailey stage By Murray Green

You can celebrate April Fool’s Day at the Bailey Theatre with an evening of fun, surprise, love, trials and tribulations on April 1 at 8 p.m. Infinite Imagination, founded by Mike Hicks and Trevor McTavish, introduce their first in a series of several theatrical productions of the recently established In House Theatre Group of the Bailey Theatre. Hicks and McTavish have several years of experience in local theatre. Together, they bring talent and expertise to Foolish Acts. They are joined by Rayna Pohorelic, a wellknown actress and director of Camrose and district theatre companies. Making his debut on the Bailey stage is Darryl Bleau, and Deb Anderson makes her second appearance. It would be foolish to miss this evening of four one-act theatre productions. Two are comedies,

This Seat Taken, written by Sean Baker. In this play, a couple endeavors to put spark in a 14-year marriage through role play. Their commitment to attempt role play is only due to their love for each other. Only after meeting with another couple, do they find, in reality, that there may very well be one right way to role play and their way may not be it. Still Life is a drama written by Seth Krammer and directed by Rayna Pohorelic. An accomplished artist is confronted with tragedy and despair and must face the question, what do you do when your purpose in life is stolen from you? Can a friend come to your assistance in finding answers? This heart-touching drama is not to be missed. Tickets are available online at www.baileytheatre.com/tickets, at the Bailey Box Office, 5041-50 Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 5 p.m., or by phoning 780-672-5510.

“It is done in a positive and rewarding environment to encourage dancers to have fun, while improving their skills.” The youngest dancers are three years old and it goes up to adult performances. “We will have everything such as ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, novelty, musical theatre and hip hop,” Kirsti added. The dance instructors have more than 10 years experience in Central Alberta. “We have taught many students in varying levels and have attended many festivals of varying arrangements. Through our experiences attending festivals as dancers, instructors, organizers and adjudicators, we have collaborated our beliefs and values to create what we

feel would be the most beneficial composition for a dance festival for dance students. Our focus is to provide this experience for both recreational and competitive studios ranging from small city, town and rural communities to larger city centres, allowing for the most balanced performance atmosphere for our dancers,” added Kirsti. “We are happy to bring this kind of an event to Camrose because we grew up there. We went to festivals when we were younger and we thought about bringing this level of dance to Camrose. This is one way we thought we could do it,” said Kirsti, who runs Studio K Dance in Sundre. Antoinelle teaches in Lacombe and Blackfalds with Dancers Edge. Together, they strive to create and foster a passion

to small city, town, rural or recreational studios. Adjudicators not only critique, but construct and confirm dancers abilities. The Bright Dance Festival offers the same great atmosphere and experience, but with the added edge of a competition.

Routinely update your cosmetic collection

Gel Fingers Gel Toes Nail Art Certified Nail Therapist and Nail Basics Educator

APPOINTMENTS: 780-678-2610

Makeup, skin creams, ointments … it’s not uncommon for people to keep beauty products long after these items are past their prime without realizing that these products have shelf lives. According to Jessica Wu, MD, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Southern California, most beauty products are designed to stay fresh and stable for a limited time. Failure to routinely update makeup collections can result in products not working to their potential and even threatening health, as bacteria can hide away in containers and cause infections. The best way to avoid any issues is to regularly go through cosmetic products, tossing out old merchandise and buying new items when necessary. The following is a listing of the shelf life of many popular items and when to replace them. • Unopened products: If you have some cosmetic products that haven’t yet been opened, they might remain stable for a couple of years at room temperature, according to chemists at Cosmetech Laboratories in New Jersey. Air can cause formulas to oxidize, and germs can be transferred to products when they are touched.

into

Plus • Eye products: Mascara and eyeliners make contact with the eye, an area of the body that is sensitive and vulnerable. These items should be discarded every three to six months to prevent the formation of bacteria. Eyeliner pencils have longer shelf lives than mascaras because they’re being sharpened. • Foundation: Liquid foundations last around a year, and storing them in a cool, dark place will help them last even longer. After a year, the foundation could separate and its consistency may change. When applying foundation, avoid using your fingers, which can cause bacteria to build up more quickly. • Body brushes and loofah sponges: Acne and infections on the body may be a result of products and beauty items that are kept in the shower. Constantly being wet and in a warm, dark place makes these items the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria. Discard these items every few months, and make sure they’re washed out and allowed to dry completely after each use. • Lip gloss and lipstick: People run the risk of mouth sores by using old lipsticks and lip glosses. Bacteria can easily be transferred from the mouth to these items. Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to discard lip products between six months to a year after purchase. What’s more, color changes can occur and the products’ quality may begin to degrade. If makeup and other cosmetic products have been sitting around for a while, it’s likely time to buy a new collection to maintain safety and function.

Making used good again

William McGonigal of Ferintosh prepares the next items for repair or renewal in his little shop.

By Ron Pilger 80 years old and selling good used “stuff” as quick as he gets it! William McGonigal would not be considered your typical 80-year-old. He’s definitely not one to sit around. In fact, he’s tough to keep up to! On an average day, you will find him in his simple, dull and dated shop with a saw, drill or a stain brush in his hand. He might be making repairs to a coffee table or night stand, or perhaps adding reinforcing braces to an old-fashioned laundry stand for a customer. A few hours later, he might be loading his highmileage van with a “fixedup” cabinet or a snowblower or perhaps a lawnmower that he has got running again which he will deliver (often at no extra charge) into Camrose. Bill (as he is known by people far and wide), is a mostly-retired farmer; however, he still raises a small herd of goats. Bill and his best friend, Eva, live a few miles south of Ferintosh. He readily admits: “I’m not a finishing carpenter – that’s for certain! But I make furniture and other things functional again. “Not everyone needs new, expensive and pretty. Some people need some-

thing which just does the job. That’s my hobby – helping people. Most people my age can’t or won’t haul around furniture or other heavy items. For me, finding a chair or a china cabinet or a hedge trimmer that needs a bit of love and attention, selling it for a great price, and getting it to them is the way I can help people. And, I’m having a ton of fun and meeting some new and nice people every day of the week!” Bill sources his items at estate sales, garage sales, auction sales, where he routinely buys “good stuff” by the pallet and by networking. “Everybody knows me,” says Bill, with a twinkle in his eye. “For years, I’ve had a table at Rose City Farmers’ Market. In fact, I’m being pressured to run for the Market board or chair position. I go to all of the auctions that are held and I’ve been here forever.” Bill explains his current hobby turned into a small business venture: “Do I make a lot of money? No, I don’t, that’s for sure. I hope to make a profit when I see something and my goal is five percent. This is more about living life, meeting people, helping a single mom with small kids, or doing something

for a senior who can’t do what I am able to do. “This gives me energy! It’s fun. And, yes, I make a few dollars doing something I love.” The turning point for Bill’s business endeavour? “Without a doubt, it was when The Booster started offering free For Sale ads in the classified section. “I know when The Booster gets delivered. My phone starts ringing almost instantly. I get calls from people close to the Saskatchewan border. I get more calls from the rural area than from inside the City. I keep track. I average ten calls every week for the items I advertise in The Booster.” His second secret to success: “I started trading rather than selling. When I deliver something, I ask people what they have that they no longer need. Then we make a deal that both of us are happy with! I get something new in my inventory. Something different to fix. Another way to make a new friend. And I might even make a few dollars.” The interview abruptly ends. His phone rings. Bill is a busy man and time is precious. He’s off to make the delivery of a TV stand on wheels to a seniors’ home in Camrose.

Mayor signs proclamation for Meals on Wheels week By Lori Larsen

Meals on Wheels Camrose is proclaiming March 27 to 31 Meals on Wheels Awareness Week. The aim of Meals on Wheels Awareness Week is to educate residents on the important service provided to residents who may not be able to adequately plan and prepare their own healthy meals. Meals on Wheels is a registered society that offers a hot noon meal delivered to clients homes by volunteers up to five days per week (not including stat holidays) and a frozen food program (all frozen foods are prepared without food additives). All hot meals are prepared daily from scratch and are low fat and low salt, consisting of a soup or salad, main course and dessert, and are based on Canada’s Food Guide. The meals are delivered to the recipients by a group of dedicated volunteers. History

“In the fall of 1972, ladies from the Camrose United Church invited interested people from the various churches in Camrose to meet with the prospect of initiating a Meals on Wheels program in the City,” said Camrose and District Pre-school and Camrose and District Home Support director Maria Lobreau. “The meals were con-

tracted from Versa Foods at St. Mary’s Hospital at a cost of $0.85,” explained Lobreau. “Recipients were charged $1. The 15 cents was used to help recover costs of containers.” Ross Jacques served as treasurer for several years, then the church coordinators turned the money into Camrose and District Support Services (CDSS) office. The first meals were delivered on Jan. 8, 1973, beginning with 11 recipients and eventually 19. The first annual meeting was held on May 2, 1973 at the United Church. Mrs. Dorothy Easton chaired the meeting and a constitution was accepted. Churches participating in the first year were St.

Andrew’s Anglican, Alliance Church, Evangelical Covenant, Living Faith Fellowship and the Church of God. In February 1984, new carriers for the meals were purchased and, in November 1985, signs were made available for delivery vehicles. In February 1988, the meal preparation was contracted to Bethany Long Term Care Centre and, in September of that year, a cart was purchased to carry the meals from the Bethany kitchen to the loading area. In 1995, Camrose Meals on Wheels and Camrose Homemakers’ Services amalgamated to become Camrose and District Support Services. The program continued

to see changes including delivery of meals on weekends in 1995, and the availability of frozen meals in 2005. “In 2015, meal preparation began at the Brookside Bethany kitchen,” noted Lobreau. “In 2016, we served 4,094 hot meals and 671 frozen meals.” For 95 years, Bethany Group, a non-profit organization, has grown to provide health and housing services to clients in over 30 communities. “Meals on Wheels is one the programs of Bethany Group that helps many people in the Camrose community,” said Bethany Group manager David Saunders. “Moving to the Brookside kitchen meant providing a better service to the Meals on Wheels clients versus the kitchen in Rosehaven which is designed to provide meals for clients in long-term care, not necessarily for those out in the community.”

Currently, the kitchen prepares 400 meals a month (20 a day) on average and is eager to take on more requests from the community. “This program has relied heavily on the generous support of the community; firstly, the volunteers who deliver all the meals and secondly, for financial support,” said Lobreau. “Many individuals, churches, service clubs, businesses and organizations have contributed to our volunteer roster and purchase supplies necessary to provide the service. Our sincere thanks to all of you.” This year, Camrose Meals on Wheels Celebrates 45 years of service.

Augustana Outdoors Club holds equipment drive

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Augustana Outdoors Club members, left to right, Emily Lyseng, Nils Asfeldt and Cameron Hutchinson, gathered some examples of gear that could be donated to the club’s upcoming Gear Drive on April 5 at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. By Lori Larsen

The University of Alberta Augustana Campus Outdoors Club is holding a gear drive on April 5 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Augustana Welcome Desk located in the Forum. They are asking residents to donate any outdoor activity equipment, gear or clothing. “We’ve been looking at trying to start a rental program, either through the Augustana Outdoor Education Program or through

the Augustana Outdoors Club (AOC),” explained Nils Asfeldt, member of the AOC. The initiative was triggered when Asfeldt was contacted by an assistant professor of the Augustana Outdoor Education Program regarding purchasing some of the tents the program was giving up. “We ended up buying ten of the tents and that kickstarted this whole campaign.” The objective behind the AOC’s gear drive is to

acquire outdoor gear, in good condition, to rent to Augustana students and community members who may not otherwise have equipment at their disposal, but want to participate in outdoor activities. “It would primarily be for Augustana students,” said AOC member Emily Lyseng, “But we would definitely like to open it up to the community and have that gear available to them as well.” Asfeldt added the rentals would be for personal use and could include renting items for the entire summer for camping. Examples of gear that could be donated include, but are not limited to, outdoor clothing including fleece, wicking undergarments and rain gear, hiking boots, sleeping bags and mats, compasses, campstoves, outdoor cookware, headlamps, f la sh l ight s, sk is, snowboards and goggles. Larger items such as canoes or kayaks are welcome, but the Gear Drive committee asks, if you are considering donating a large item, to call ahead so they can arrange for storage.

“We are looking for anything a student coming to residence would not necessarily have available or bring with them because their rooms are tiny,” noted Lyseng. Asfeldt pointed out that often students at Augustana desire to take part in outdoor activities but, due to budget restraints, often do not have the appropriate equipment. Having a place to rent the equipment would make the activities more accessible. “Our over-arching mission for the Outdoors Club is to make the outdoors accessible to all, and this gear rental program is an extension of that,” said Asfeldt. Lyseng said, “It is a great way to introduce people to being outside because they can try it out (without putting out a great deal of expense) and if they like it, they can continue to pursue that interest. Both Lyseng and Asfeldt agree it is a perfect fit for international or outof-province students who might arrive at university with little more than one suitcase. The AOC consists of approximately 25 regu-

lar members with another larger contingent of dropins, including community Alumni members for a few of the major events held during the year. Generally, the club holds 10 to 12 events throughout the year. Major events include a trip to the Edmonton Wave Pool to surf the waves or overnight camping trips. Community members are welcome to join in any of the activities. The club is presently in the process of working out the fine details such as pricing, insurance and storage. “One of the main barriers right now is going to be storage (for the donated items),” said Asfeldt. “We have had meetings with Augustana Facilities and Operations, but we may be looking for future donations of building supplies for a shed that we might have to build.” For more information on the Gear Drive or the Augustana Outdoors Club visit the Facebook page at facebook.com/uofa.asa/ photos/ or contact Nils Asfeldt at email asfeldt@ ualberta.ca or by telephone at 780-213-1712.

WHO can

New Bill to protect property rights

I count on?

By Murray Green

Wildrose Livingstone– Macleod MLA Pat Stier introduced an enhanced bill to protect property rights that would remove adverse possession, or squatters’ rights, from Alberta law, on March 23. Bill 204 would bring Alberta law up to speed with the majority of Canada by removing squatters’ rights, an archaic law that permits untitled occupants of land for 10 years or longer to take possession of that same land without a valid agreement with the original owner, from the books. The Alberta Property Rights Advocate recommended scrapping the law back in 2014 since Alberta and Nova Scotia are the only provinces with a law such as this still in place. “It’s high time we caught up to the rest of the country and abolished squatters’ rights in this province,” Stier said in opposition to the current law. “In addition to the many good things, my Bill would protect property rights. This is the big issue that so many hardworking landowners have been waiting patiently to see fixed.” A motion on abolishing squatters’ rights received party support, but there is no indication that legislation will be coming from the government. Last session, Stier introduced Bill 210 to take out the draconian ministerial powers in Bill 36, the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA), and to improve landowner rights with regard to energy exploration. After the session ended, bills not completely processed had to be re-introduced. Stier introduced Bill 204 which, like Bill 210, would also reform ALSA by, revising Section 19.1 of ALSA so landowners receive fair compensation when their livelihood is directly and negatively impacted by regional planning. This includes rights for holders of statutory consents (such as forestry permits, intensive livestock operation licenses, oil and gas leases and grazing leases) to recover financial losses through the courts if they are negatively impacted by regional planning. “There’s no place for squatters’ rights in Alberta in 2017. This is a golden opportunity for the government to work with the opposition and accomplish something good for Albertans,” said Stier.

Probabilities

By Arnold Malone

Achieving personal goals is strongly dependent on the probability for success. As a teenager, I wanted to marry Debbie Reynolds and my imagined chance was high since I knew exactly what I would say to her. In reality, the probability was far below absolute zero. (Marilyn Monroe was also a consideration, but I thought Mother might not approve). It is not wise to take risks based on hope, yet when the prize is highly desired, some persons substitute fairy dust for logic (See previous paragraph). Recently, there were news reports about a person who had wire from a barbecue brush stuck in their esophagus. The wire from the brush was embedded in a hamburger. This was a serious incident and it was newsworthy. This should encourage us to carefully check the grill. It should not stop us from using a brush. Of the millions of Canadians who barbecue multiple times every year, those minute few who did not inspect their grill should not be a reason to stop brushing away the yuck. News reports are a bothersome source for scaring the wits out of us for a .001 per cent chance that we might come to some harm. If that were the measure for safety, no one would ever enter a highway. Measured risk is a part of living. The better we measure and the more appropriately we respond, the more likely we will continue to be safe and successful. One of the common activities with virtually no chance of success is the purchase of lottery tickets. When a lottery is supporting a respected charity, one might rationalize the terrible odds. When purchasing a Lotto Max ticket, there is a one in 28.6 million chance of winning. Some people try to elevate their winning probabilities by buying multiple tickets. Every ticket buyer is amoung 28.6 million losers and one winner. If you bought one million tickets, you would have one million chances of winning against 27.6 million chances of losing. To put lottery purchases in perspective, put 28,600,000 white beans in a rotating container along with a winning black bean. Each morning, pull out one bean until you draw the black one. If the black bean is drawn last, you will be 75,000 years old before you become a winner. If, on average, the black bean was drawn mid-way through the process, you would only be 37,000 years old. We think we can win because we saw an ecstatic person with a three-meter long cheque claiming, “This $ 50 million will never change me.” (They all say that.) If all the losers took 10 seconds on TV to say, “I bought a Lotto Max ticket and I didn’t win,” then you would need to sit and stare at your TV for eight uninterrupted hours for 993 days to view all the losers, followed by one person who would say, “I bought a ticket and I won.” Long before you finished viewing, you would likely smash the screen and return to a life of better odds. I should never buy a lottery ticket. I can’t ever get my luggage to arrive first after an air flight. One time, I flew with 11 others; seven other suitcases arrived before mine. Judgment should be based on probability. Some persons are excellent at doing such, while others bet on hope. Hope is never enough. However, a long time ago, I won the lottery twice. Out of seven billion persons, only 36 million got to live in Canada and I was one of them. Also, I had the good fortune to arrive in the mid20th century, rather than in a time long ago when the lovers of lottery chances would have dragged me off to a local torture chamber.

Automatic transmissions were invented in Saskatchewan By Murray Green

With all of the technology throughout the world in the car industry, it is hard to imagine that the invention of the automatic transmission for vehicles was invented in Regina, Saskatchewan. Although most people didn’t mind shifting a few gears in driving cars in its early days, a lot of women hated it. Gears were missed, engines were raced, stockings were torn and high heels were broken while trying to get manual transmissions shifted. The problem continued to escalate when men went off to war and women stepped up to help more on the home front. They wanted a vehicle that they could just press the gas and go. The obvious advantage of an automatic transmission to the driver is the lack of a clutch pedal and manual shift pattern in normal driving. The introduction of the automatic transmission did this by offering a smooth form of shifting. The earliest automobiles offered only manual transmissions, which were similar in principle to today’s stickshift vehicles. These cars sported two forward gears and one reverse, coupled to the engine via a series of pedals.

Control of the car at low speeds is often easier with an automatic than a manual, due to a side effect of the clutchless fluid-coupling design called “creep” that causes the car to want to move while in a driving gear, even at idle. But as cars grew larger and traffic got worse, engineers began searching for a way to have the car automatically shift from one gear to another. Designers spent decades perfecting the modern automatic transmission. The first automatic transmission was invented on the prairies in 1921 by Canadian steam engineer, Alfred Horner Munro. He designed a device to use compressed air, rather than hydraulic fluid so it lacked power and never sold commercially. However, a Wall Street Journal article credits Z.F. Friedrichshafen with the invention, occurring shortly after the First World War. His origins were in manufacturing gears for airship engines, beginning in 1915 with the company founded by Ferdinand von Zeppelin. The first automatic transmission using hydraulic fluid may have been developed in 1932 by two Brazilian engineers,

José Braz Araripe and Fernando Lehly Lemos. In 1934, both REO and General Motors developed semi-automatic transmissions that were less difficult to operate than a fully manual unit. These designs, however, continued to use a clutch to engage the engine with the transmission. The Brazilian plans for the automatic caught the eye of General Motors who then developed the first automatic transmission using hydraulic fluid in the

Second World War in some military vehicles. The 1948 Oldsmobile was the first model to use a true automatic transmission. The Hyrda-Matic, developed by GM engineer, Earl Thompson, was billed as “The greatest advance since the self-starter.” The Hydra-Matic went through continual upgrading and refinements through 1955, but the basic design and theory used were consistent throughout its remarkably long life span. General Motors replaced the Hydra-Matic in 1956

1930s, and introduced the Hydra-Matic transmission in 1940 in Oldsmobiles. The Hydra-Matic was subsequently adopted by Cadillac and Pontiac, and was sold to various other automakers, including Bentley, Hudson, Kaiser, Nash and Rolls-Royce. It also found use during the

with the Jetaway. The jet was not a roaring success and quickly gave way to the Turbo Hydra-Matic in 1969. The original HydraMatic transmission was one of the most important innovations in the history of the automobile. It wasn’t the first automatic trans-

mission, but it was the first one that really worked and its resounding commercial success paved the way for every subsequent autoshifter. The technology came along at an opportune time in history as North America was abundant with victory from the Second World War and building up steam for the post-war boom. With its simplicity and ease of use, the automatic transmission offered up the automobile to the masses. At the very least it widened the perspective of an increasingly mobile workforce, fed the flow of migration to the suburbs, and welcomed women back into the economy following the war effort. The most significant changes/improvements in the automatic transmission design to date are the number of forward gears transmissions now have and the switch from mechanically controlled to electronically controlled transmission operations. Mechanically controlled automatic transmissions have reached their limit in terms of future improvements, while electronically (or computer) controlled automatic gearboxes have only touched the surface of the possibilities.

Benefits of waxing motor vehicles Submitted

After a thorough washing and interior detailing, many vehicle owners put the finishing touch on their cars and trucks by applying a coat of wax. Is this a practice of automotive vanity, or does waxing actually pay legitimate dividends? A coat of wax provides a pristine shine and can help protect paint from the elements. Waxing may not be as essential as in years past, when vehicle paints were run-of-the-mill lacquers that didn’t offer much in the way of protection. But waxing can still provide a variety of benefits that go beyond making a vehicle look good when cruising down the highway. Protects paint’s clear coating: According to the research team at consumer resource site Angie’s List, Seasonal failing to occasionally apply Tire Stora wax or another protectant ge Available to the vehicle’s exterior can cause a breakdown of the clear coat that protects the paint. If the clear coating deteriorates, the paint can be exposed to road salt and may be vulnerable to damPackage Includes: age from oxidation.

The dealership will perform a thorough inspection and could charge for discoloration, scratches or other paint issues. Waxing regularly may help reduce those expenses. May help prevent careless driving: A person who diligently takes care of his or her vehicle may translate that care into caution behind the wheel. If one is excited to keep a clean and well-maintained car, it makes sense that the same person will want to protect the vehicle in other ways, such as through safe driving habits. Provides exercise and fresh air: A day spent washing and waxing a vehicle can be enjoyable to those who can use some time outdoors. Improves resale value: A well-maintained car or truck is more attractive to potential buyers. That can translate into a higher resale value, whether the vehicle is sold privately or as a trade-in. Waxing a vehicle is beneficial in various ways. New formulations are easier than ever to apply and can provide that shiny, well-maintained look drivers covet.

You can drive more efficiently Submitted

Many people aspire to drive more efficiently in an attempt to conserve fuel, save money and reduce the carbon footprints of their vehicles. But driving efficiently can also make driving safer for motorists, their passengers and everyone else, including pedestrians, sharing the roads. Drivers who want to drive more efficiently can implement a variety of strategies to do just that. Obey the speed limits. Speed limits are determined with safety in mind, and drivers should always adhere to posted speed limits to protect themselves, their passengers and others on the road. In 2015, 27 per cent of motor vehicle crash deaths were speeding-related. But obeying the speed limit is also cost-effective. Miles per gallon begins to dip dramatically when vehicles travel above 55 miles per hour. While each vehicle is different, the EPA notes that increasing highway cruising speed from 55 miles per hour to 75 miles per hour can raise fuel consumption by as much as 20 per cent. Do not idle a vehicle. Electronic engines do not need to warm up, even in winter when temperatures are especially cold. Vehicles that are idling can produce as much pollution as vehicles that are in motion, and idling for as little as 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine. Drivers concerned about overtaxing their engines shortly after starting them can warm their engines by easing into their drives and avoiding excessive revving. Use cruise control wisely. Drivers concerned about fuel economy may be accustomed to turning on their vehicles’ cruise control when driving long distances on the highway. While that is an effective and fuelefficient way to maintain steady speeds, turn cruise control off when traversing roads with steep hills. On such roads, fuel efficiency can be lost because the vehicle engine is working harder to maintain steady speeds. Tighten the gas cap. When gas caps are loose, fuel evaporates. The Car Care Council notes that loose, missing or damaged gas caps contribute to the evaporation of roughly 147 million gallons of gas per year. Driving efficiently can make roadways safer, benefit the environment and save drivers considerable amounts of money.

Avoid warming vehicle By Murray Green

Regardless of the temperature outside, you should avoid vehicle idling. The best way to warm up your engine in the cold is to gently start driving. If you are driving a vehicle that is newer then 1980, then idling should be a thing of the past. Vintage cars did need

a bit of time to warm up because the carburetor couldn’t always get the right mix of air and fuel into the engine when it was cold. But carburetors were replaced by fuel injectors starting in the 80s, so unless you drive a car that is more than 30 years old, it’s time to change your bad habit.

Modern fuel-injection technology relies on sensors to supply fuel to the engine and these sensors adjust to temperature, so you should only need a maximum of 30 seconds of idling before driving away. Idling for more than 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting your engine, and it gets you zero

kilometers per litre. Idling to warm up your car simply wastes fuel and increases emissions, which is bad for both the environment and your wallet. If you follow your owner’s manual and use the correct type of oil for your vehicle and climate, there’s no need to worry about cold oil. Modern synthetic motor oil can flow at temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, so your car should get the oil it needs as soon as you start your car. When your engine is cold, the fuel injectors supply it with more fuel. Idling your engine, therefore, forces it to operate in a very inefficient, fuel-rich mode that can cause excessive engine wear and damage components including the cylinders, spark plugs and exhaust system.

A cold engine produces more unburned hydrocarbons. Idling your engine to warm it up releases harmful emissions that have been linked to cancer, diabetes, cognitive degeneration, and heart and lung disease. This is especially dangerous if you idle in your garage. Even with the garage door open you are putting yourself and your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Idling your car is completely unnecessary even in the cold. In extreme temperatures, using a block heater or plugging in your vehicle are far better alternatives. Stop idling and make the right choice for your car, wallet, health and environment.

Tigers reap gold, Trojans collect silver By Murray Green

Hay Lakes won the final game against the Senator Gershaw (Bow Island) School for gold medals in 1A basketball provincials on March 18. The Tigers also beat Livingstone 66-63 and Parkland 70-49 to earn a trip to the final. “We were ranked fourth going into the provincials. We were as high as number two during the year, and I thought we were one of the top four teams and thought we had a shot at a medal,” said Hay Lakes coach Brian Hoglund. The Tigers went 39-1 during the year, so the players and coaches knew they were capable of challenging the top teams. “The southern teams, all three ranked ahead of us, were good and the south is always strong. Pincher Creek, Livingstone (Lundbreck) and Bow Island were good, but looking at the scores around the province, we were right there,” coach added. “We had to beat the top team, Livingstone who were the defending champs, to reach the final. They scouted us and we scouted them and it was like looking in a mirror of our team. They could play defence and score some points.” The longer Hay Lakes stayed with the top team, the more confidence they gained. “Our guys believed they could play with the big boys from the south. We stayed within four points and made a comeback to win by three,” explained coach Hoglund. “We had five guys with double digits in scoring, so it was a total team effort. Our advantage was our depth. Most teams were using six players and I was using 10 guys.” Focusing on defence always came first and they knew the scoring would come. “We played the number two team in the final and it wasn’t tough to get them to focus because they have been doing it all year. This group was really motivated. All year they just wanted to see how good they could be,” said Hoglund. “Our defence won it. We felt as long as we could get stops, we would get enough chances to score. It was an unbelievable year. Winning zones was the goal we set at the beginning of the year. Two years ago the core of this team went 8-19. We were not very good at all. We took our lumps, but motivating them was never a problem. I knew this was a special group and a ton of fun to coach. They listened, worked hard and did all of the little things right. To win the gold is cool and a little bit surreal.” The players kept pushing themselves to create the magical year. “Our zone is the second toughest in the province and that helped us. Forestburg was ranked sixth in the province, so the other teams pushed us to get better. It helped being in a strong league and it doesn’t always get the respect for it. New Norway was ranked in the top 10 at one point, but Forestburg beat them so they didn’t get to go to provincials.” The Tigers will lose five players next year, but will still field a good team on the court. Besides coach Hoglund and manager Cody These, Ty Hoglund, Carson Tylosky, Kyle Murray, Travis Dolter, Michael Taylor, Dallas Whiskeyjack, Joseph Barth, Connor Lange, Eric Rees, Justin Hoecherl, Taylor Sych, Jon Atema and Braden Lange were members of the gold medal wining team. Silver medals

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans collected silver medals at the 3A basketball provincials in Medicine Hat on March 18. St. Peter the Apostle captured the gold by knocking off the Trojans 74-63 in the final contest. CCHS defeated Brooks 92-71 and crushed W. R. Myers 87-42 to reach the final. The Bawlf Wildcats 1A girls squad hosted provincials, but lost to Grand Trunk 49-39 and to Rosemary 58-42 to place seventh. Viking came in ninth and Hay Lakes were 11th.

Despite the fact that Kyler Kupka missed a lot of hockey games this year, he was named to the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s south division all-rookie team. Kupka scored 13 goals and collected 28 points in just 34 games for the Kodiaks. He missed most of the last half of the season due to an injury. Cody Laskosky of the local area and the Whitecourt Wolverines was named to the north allrookie team. He had 12 goals and 37 points in 53 games.

Augustana curlers come up short By Murray Green

Earning the provincial curling championships put a target on the backs of the Augustana Vikings men’s curling team. Every team was gunning to beat them in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Conference nationals at the Rose City Curling Club on March 22 to 25. The Augustana Vikings men’s rink of skip Andrew Klassen, third Simard, second Austin Lavallee and lead Aidan Anderson started slow with a 7-4 loss to Red Deer, but took it out on the NAIT Ooks in the second game with the Vikings winning 14-4 in seven ends, including a seven ender in the second. The local team was up 4-2 after third ends to Logan James of Mohawk, but four straight scoring ends for the

Hawks put them up for an eventful 10-5 victory. Klassen and company bounced back with a 9-3 win against the familiar Matt Taylor rink out of Lakeland. Klassen scored four in the fifth to take a 5-2 lead, but the Charlie Richard rink from Fanshawe bounced back with four of their own in the sixth to start a come back for a 9-6 victory. The local team rebounded for a 7-4 win over the Olds team skipped by Dustyn Wozny to equal its record to 3-3 with one contest left in the round robin. Augustana played Zack Shurtleff’s Humber Hawks squad and dropped a 6-3 decision to go 3-4 overall. Lady Vikings

The Augustana Vikings women’s rink of skip Nikki Smith, third Jensen Manners, second Lynnelle Mache

and lead Katelyn Skolski suffered a 6-2 loss to Concordia in the opening game. The Vikings lost 7-4 to NAIT in their second outing in the eight team event. In the third game, the Fanshawe Falcons rink from Ontario won 9-4. Augustana met Cassandra Paccanaro’s Humber Hawks rink next and lost a 8-7 heartbreaker in the 10th end. The Smith rink broke a 3-3 tie in fifth end to score one and went on to win 10-4 over Tessa Briscoe’s Lakeland team. The Red Deer Marla Sherrer rink beat Augustana 9-5 in the sixth round. In the final round robin game, Vikings faced the Emma Caldwell rink from the Niagara Knights, winning 7-5 for a 2-5 record.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest

Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price

The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible

Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Rocking it in Fredericton

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Lee Johns poses in the hack of sheet seven of the Rose City Curling Club surrounded by left to right World Financial Group Shawn McEachern and Trevor Nordstrom and Kit Abuan from Everest. Lee was the lucky winner of a trip for two to Fredericton, NB for the Everest Canadian Seniors Curling Championships. By Lori Larsen

Being an avid curler paid off for one lucky Camrosian. Lee Johns, a member of the Rose City Curling Club and a devout curler, was the winner of the 2017 Everest-Ferbey National Pro Am Contest. Sponsored by Everest, (The First Nationwide Funeral Planning and Concierge Service) out of Edmonton, and locally, World Financial Group, a contest was run to

select four winners across Canada to attend the Canadian Seniors’ Curling Championships in Fredericton, NB on March 25. Entries were put into a ballot box located at Rose City Curling Club and removed each week by Trevor Nordstrom of WFG then sent in for the National contest. Johns was one of the four VIP winners, the only one from Alberta, for a grand prize consisting of an all-expenses-paid trip for Lee and a guest (his wife June) including round trip airfare to Fredericton, a three-night stay in the Delta Hotel, VIP access to all Everest Canadian Seniors Curling Championship games, welcome dinner with the pros, $500 spending money and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to curl alongside five legendary Canadian Curlers – Randy Ferbey, Jennifer Jones, Brent Laing, Brad Jacobs and Al Hackner during the 3rd Annual Everest Ferbey National Pro Am. Last year’s winner of one of the grand prizes was from Viking.

The basement has a huge family room with a decorative fireplace. The potential

for this room is endless including a family games area with room for a ping pong table. The basement also features a large laundry area open to an offset room that would make a great craft or work room, a two-piece bathroom and plenty of storage space. Back alley access brings you to a single car garage, a must-have on snowy days, and a covered carport for parking a second vehicle. Included in the purchase is the stove, fridge, washer, dryer, window coverings and shed. Priced at $260,000 this home at 31 Montcalm Avenue is easy enough on your budget to either call home, have as an investment property, or add your own personal touches with some minor renovations. There will be an open house on March 30 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. For a personal viewing contact Matt Banack at:
